MANUFACTURE OP GLASS An unredeemed promise, made in a recent "Pittsburgh litter ," that at some future lime, I would enter moro minutely Into the great manufacturing operations constantly going forward in that producing city, I now hope in some humble degree to fulfil. Tho class of manufactories to which the reader's attention is at present invited, as my caption indloates, is that which is confined to tho article of glass. Though, inasmuch as tho uso of this artiolo is so universal, and the ignorance of its history and meohanical production so general, a brief historical sketch of its discovery and progress, may not be an inappropriate prelude to the description of the manufactories themselves. It would doubtless bo sheer presumption to attempt to Hi upon tho precise period at which the discovery of glass-making occurred. Without undertaking to controvert, or oriticiso the assertions of some writers, however, that glass was known before the flood, its post-deluvian discovery ...

MR. CALHOUN'S GREAT PROPHECY In the letter of tho Hon. John C. Caluoun, dated August 12th, 1844, while ho was Secretary of State, addressed to Wimum R. Kino, then American Minister at tho French Court, which letter contained the instructions of the Federal Government on the annexation of Texas, is the following statement. When wo consider all that has transpired, from that day to this, and particularly the efforts now making by France to revive tho slave trade, in a new but scarcely less offensive form, and when we see Great Britain Herself, through her organs in Parliament and tho press, admitting that all her efforts to cultivate her West India possessions, by means of free blacks, ore failures, the opinion of Mr. Oauhoun may be regarded as prophecy fulflilled: ' But, to descend to particulars: it is certain that while England, Hke Francedesires the independence of Texas, with the view to commercial transactions, it is not less so that one of the loading motives of England...

C|t;l tit I WEDNESDAT, AUGUST 12, 1867 THE GREATEST OF REVOLUTIONS. The age of wonder Has gone by. People are surprised, now-a-days, atnothing. Science and art;'operated upon by that combination of thought, industry and tact, which men call Genius, have almostannihilated time and space. Look hack only no short a period as half a century, ago, and wonder how it was. possible to have existed then, wanting the comforts, tho elegancies, the useful arts of life, which, once kn*wn, ' become necessaries. There were no steamboats in those days—no gas—no elec-Jtrolyped ; metals—no railroads—no electric telegraph—no sewinc machines—no steam power turning' out 20,000 impressions in an hour. They were dispensed with, because they were unknown—a moral truth, which none can deny.' Once known,'W cannot do without them. .. Society would fancy itself resolved back-to, a-state of nature, if it had to make shift-without gas; steam; and electricity. One by one,'great inventions have been brou...

, . STREET NOItLEftCI-ATUJli;. - Having lately, altered and improved our street-numbering, it would not be very much out of the wfly,-were we to pay some little atierition to street-naming. ' Curious enough it is that, with few exceptions, streets are capriciously named without any reference whatever to system or variety. Every man who erects a double row of houses, sufficient to give the.place the brevet title of " street," bestows a same upon it, just as his own fancy may suggest, and without the slightest regard to the excessive number of times such a name may already-liave been appropriated, for the,same purpose, by other parties, at various times. For example, the' name of Smith way be a favorite with-the public—a Kreat many respectable; persons bear that remarkable patronymic; we bejieye^-but' there :» a disadvantage in this ' popularity, it will be admitted, when the fact transpires that the name of " Smith Court" is actually bestowed and repeated'upon. as. many.as eighte...
